Prices and hardware reviewed and updated: 14th Oct 2020

If you are looking to buy a new PC that can play Lucius 3 then below you will find we explore exactly that. We are putting together a gaming PC build for Lucius 3 from a carefully selected set of our favourite hardware components that are priced best today. In doing this we keep in mind our need to deliver the game reliably on the best graphics possible, while running on 1440p screen res. Todays prices will be checked every few hours to make sure only the best hardware at the best prices will be displayed for this build.

Today we find Lucius 3 is not in our top demanding games list and currently not figuring in our more popular games lists of today. It also falls in under the Adventure, Puzzler, Action game genre types, which itself can influence some of our choices of hardware today, to make sure we better meet the hardware needs of the game. This sort of information will help us build a fuller picture and better understand what to select when putting our best build PC together for the game. Interestingly, it might be worth thinking about the performance of the hardware that the game was originally built on, which would have been from 2018 and shortly before. So the devs themselves may have been aiming for hardware with performance capability from this particular period.

Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Lucius 3 PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Lucius 3 in ultra 1440p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $175.45, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Checking our records our lowest tracked price for this card was on 5th Feb 2020 which had it priced at $123.99.

Our ideal build will need to come with either 6GB of VRAM or more than. This is used by the computer to store image data quickly as it passes image information from GPU to CPU. Our selected Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB comes with 4GB of VRAM which should cover image transfer for Lucius 3 at this resolution.

Selecting The Right Lucius 3 1440p Motherboard and CPU

Finding a cpu is largely dependent on the right motherboard. The CPU we are going to choose has the LGA 1151 socket type. So we have found the best priced and well featured mobo in the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151. The Core i5-9400F 6-Core 2.9GHz processor will then fit in and accompany our Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB selection nicely, with the cpu being at a great price point, costing $148. The cheapest price we spotted this cpu for is $119.99, which was on 16th Mar 2020.

Having the competitive price tag of $49.46, the MSI B360M PRO-VD Intel mATX LAG1151 motherboard’s strong price point today helps it stay in this Lucius 3 PC build. We have checked the mobo prices and found that on 28th Dec 2019, this motherboard was priced at a low of $32.99.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Lucius 3 At The Right Price

One of the more significant hardware components in this Lucius 3 build is the RAM. We are choosing some complementary and well priced Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz. It is currently priced at $52.99. While among the best priced system memory for this build it will still provide us with the ability to reach our desired FPS for the 1440p ultra setting, that we have been focusing on with this PC. Our RAM recorded prices put this Silicon Power 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400MHz price at $47.99 on 30th Oct 2020.

An Alternative Lucius 3 Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build. It has a 8% worse performance variation to the Radeon RX 570 Sapphire Pulse 4GB, so similar in capability and we have picked it as the best priced alternative manufacturer card, with a price of $139.99.
